ABSTRACT
A CLOSE friend of Max Mosley, a leading campaigner for draconian controls on the Press, is behind a new attempt to introduce a Leveson law by the back door. Lord Skidelsky, a keen supporter of Lord Justice Leveson's plans for state-backed regulation of the Press in the wake of the phone hacking scandal, was condemned last night for hijacking a key Government Bill on the economy. In an attempt to force the Government's hand, he has tabled a series of amendments to the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, which aims to free businesses from red tape to boost the recovery.
